Mitch's Moxon Vise -- Reinventing the Handwheel

I’m not sure if Christopher Schwarz inspired a craze or a hysteria when he wrote about the Moxon vise, but it is safe to say that Moxon-mania has spread throughout the land. Check out Schwarz’s blog to learn about the history of the vise. My version is made of 1 ¾”-thick ash. The handwheels are cherry with a walnut stripe and walnut wedges. They work like a charm. I’ll post a video soon of the vise in use.

P.S. Don’t judge my messy workbench.

The hand wheels are really cool -will you say how you made them?

How are you securing the vise to the bench?

I would love to know more about how you made your hand wheels.
